Joyce Study

Learn about the circumstances under which James Joyce wrote his famous Ulysses whilst he moved from Triestse, Zurich and Paris between 1914 and 1922. It’s a fascinating insight into Joyce’s life and will give you an understanding and some context of the culture in which he lived at the time.

Personal artefacts

From the ‘Family Tree of Ulysses in Print’, where you can appreciate the various editions the novel has undergone; to the original front door of No. 7 Eccles Street (Leopold Bloom’s home in Ulysses); as well as furniture from Paul Léon’s apartment, trusted friend and advisor, where they went to discuss and work on Finnegan’s Wake – there is plenty to see for any Joyce fanatic!
